Have you ever put your foot in your mouth so bad that you wished everyone around you would just disappear? Let’s face it, we probably all have. No matter how hard we try, we’re all liable to misspeak or not think through a statement… and end up looking pretty silly as a result. Still, most of the time these are one-off circumstances that don’t repeat themselves—and don’t get recorded. Unfortunately for the people on this list, their dumbest moments were recorded for the rest of us to enjoy. With no further ado, here are 55 of the dumbest things people have been caught saying.
1. Sometimes the answers are right in front of us…
Sometimes, someone says something and we don’t even realized we’ve missed the most important of it. Kind of like one of Reddit user TheRealRachel’s friends did. All you had to do was slow down and take a breath and you could’ve avoided this. Instead, this is happening.
2. Honestly, we can kind of start to the confusion here.
Look, before you leap to judgment on this one, consider that we have no idea what goes into our pills. A lot of the time they’re stuffed full of fillers and mystery substances that may or may not be the vitamins we paid good money for. So if you had diet versions of them they’d be… good for a diet? Because diets are healthy? We don’t know.
3. Retail workers can’t control the weather, sorry.
This one is so bizarre that we almost think it was just a customer playing a prank on the worker. Either that or this person was having such a bad day that they just needed someone else to take it out on. At best, this was an impulsive, angry moment taken out on someone who didn’t deserve it. At worst, well… this is a pretty confusing thing to say.
